After the 2000 election, which hinged on the results of a recount in Florida, Democrats smeared President George W. Bush as ‘selected, not elected.’
President George W. Bush campaigned on a promise to not nation-build. Instead, he launched a war against Iraq, notably mostly for its many years of nation-building that followed.
The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney worked at the State Department during the presidency of George W. Bush. While in Congress, Cheney has focused on pushing a Bush-era foreign policy, particularly in support of continuing the Afghanistan and Iraq wars indefinitely.
American foreign policy in the George W. Bush era was made by a president closely affiliated with evangelical Christianity. The thrust of his agenda was that the United States should work to democratize the Middle East.
President George W. Bush was kind of a goofy tongue-tied dude. Mostly he just mangled the English language. Barack Obama, by contrast, was a smooth talker. The problem is that frequently what he said was just wrong or tendentious.
I went to see my first gig when I was 15 – it was Loyle Carner at Shepherd’s Bush – and I remember just feeling the bass in my feet and in my body. I was so energised.
The targets of George W. Bush’s ‘axis of evil’ speech were not Iraq, Iran and North Korea. Those regimes don’t need a State of the Union address to know where they stand with the Bush administration. The intended audience was elsewhere: in France, Russia and China.
For me the root of evil today is the policy of President Bush. It is a fascist policy. I cannot understand how is it that the Jewish people, who have been the victims of Nazism, can support such a fascist policy. No other people in the world support those policies but Israel! This situation saddens me.
I don’t believe there is anti-Semitism in Europe. There is a reaction against the policy of Sharon and Bush. I think it’s artificial to think there is a new anti-Semitism. It’s an excuse. It’s a way to avoid self-criticism.
What you see is what you get. I’m not going to beat around the bush about anything.
Simon Cowell is the George Bush of the music industry.
The culture of self-gratification and deregulation that began during the Clinton years and continued under President George W. Bush led to the bursting of one stock market bubble at the turn of the century and a full-scale financial crash less than a decade later.
The costly unilateralism of the younger Bush presidency led to a decade of war in the Middle East and the derailment of American foreign policy at large.
The difference between the Bush I war against Iraq and the Bush II war against Iraq is that in the first one, we appealed to the sentiments and interests of the different groupings in the region and had them with us. In the second one, we did it on our own, on the basis of false premises, with extremely brutality and lack of political skill.
There is but one man to whom I am willing to entrust their future and that man’s name is George Bush.
Climate change – for so long an abstract concern for an academic few – is no longer so abstract. Even the Bush administration’s Climate Change Science Programme reports ‘clear evidence of human influences on the climate system.’
‘Green’ is likely to be a big issue in the 2008 U.S. presidential election – largely in response to George Bush’s suicidal refusal to engage with environmental issues.
I don’t really feel McCain. It ain’t just because Barack is black; he can make change. Just like Bush equals recession, Barack equals progression.
Back in Kuwait, I had started listening to a lot of English language music: western music, I would say – Kate Bush and Radiohead – and I loved Chet Baker, Etna James, a lot of singers and a lot of bands.
I hate to make this point too often, but imagine for a moment George W. Bush were on his sixth vacation, and he was asked about Iraq, and he said ‘I’m buying shrimp.’ You think that wouldn’t be a headline everywhere?
I didn’t vote for Bush, and I’m not happy particularly that he’s president. But I will say I’m impressed that he didn’t start bombing Afghanistan the day after Sept. 11. The more time that passes without him bombing Afghanistan, the more I respect him.
I was Al Gore’s campaign chairman in 2000, when he won a half-million more votes than George W. Bush but lost the presidency.
I am grateful to President George W. Bush for PEPFAR, which is saving the lives of millions of people in poor countries and to both Presidents Bush for the work we’ve done together after the South Asia tsunami, Hurricane Katrina and the Haitian earthquake.
Since losing his reelection in 2002, Barr has lost not only his power but also many of his friends. It doesn’t help that after alienating nearly every Democrat with impeachment, he spent the next five years alienating his fellow Republicans – railing against the invasion of Iraq, the PATRIOT Act, and the Bush administration in general.
